Welcome to the Tuckahoe Common School District Website.

Our newly formatted website represents one of the many efforts of the District and Board of Trustees to keep the public informed of the activities, programs, and services offered in the Tuckahoe Common School District.

This is an exciting time at Tuckahoe. We are transitioning into a Five-Year Plan designed through a collaboration effort of district employees, the Board of Trustees, parents, students, and community members. We encourage you to attend Board of Trustee and Parent Teacher Organization meetings to become an active member of our educational community and make a key difference in the education of our children. If you are unable to attend, please remain informed by visiting our website often, as it will be updated frequently.

Thank you for your support of our children and our school. I look forward to working with you as we provide our students with a high-quality education designed to successfully guide them down whichever path they take toward their future.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am privileged to have the opportunity to return this school year as the Principal of Tuckahoe School and I feel honored to work with our highly qualified staff, our wonderful students, and all of the supportive parents in this capacity.

Having worked at Tuckahoe for almost 20 years as a teacher and leader, I had the opportunity to work with all grade levels.  I believe my extensive background as an educator, enables me to understand and meet the needs of both teachers and parents, but ultimately allow me to serve the students and children of our community. 

I am grounded in best practices and research for what is best for students’ learning.  Therefore, my main goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supportive environment. Every student is valued and worthy of our best effort. I have developed over the years a philosophical phrase: The 4 A’s to Success! These are: Attendance, Attitude, Academics, and Activities. I will be spending a considerable amount of time discussing and implementing these concepts in what we are already doing at Tuckahoe School.  I sincerely believe that by adhering to the basic ideas embedded in these four concepts, our students will become well-rounded individuals and ready for the next phase, high school. 

I hope each of you have been enjoying these last couple of weeks of summer, and are now looking forward to a great school year.  The year will be busy, exciting and hopefully very rewarding for each student.  We want you to join us in making this the very best experience for your children.  Being informed will help.  You are invited to attend our Meet the Teacher/Open House Nights listed on the 2014/15-school calendar.  We will start with a general session, which will be followed by a time to meet and talk to your child’s teachers.  Throughout the year our school website, periodic calendars, and newsletters, etc. will attempt to provide you with the most current information.   Please be sure to also sign up for access to the Parent Portal if you did not already do so. Computers will be available that evening to sign up for the Parent Portal as well.

Please know that the caring and dedicated staff at Tuckahoe School strives to provide a solid foundation, which will carry our students through the rest of their years at Tuckahoe and their lives. It is critical that we work together to ensure their success. I look forward to meeting you and talking about your students’ success. My door is always open to you.

Thank you and kind regards,
Arlette Sicari
